Fantastic Read Oh Say Can You Fudge by Nancy Coco

Have you ever read a book that leaves you going Wow I love this book and leaving you wanting more? Well Oh Say Can You Fudge by Nancy Coco is that kind of book. I would give this book 5 plus stars and more.

This is the third book in the Candy Coated Series and each book has gotten better and better. Allie McMurphy is back with a bang in this book.  She is settling in to the Island community on Mackinac Island and trying so hard to be one of the Islanders. She is in charge of the fireworks show for the Fourth of July festivities but things start going wrong when her pyrotechnics guy and the fireworks are blown up. Can she find out who has done this terrible deed and get things back on track for the Fourth before anything else goes wrong?

This is the best book of the series so far, and the other two were really good. Allie is more sure of herself and starting to fit in better with the island people. I really like how she is becoming more secure and self assured in this book. She is smart, confident and yet still the same sweet, nice and at times still na├»ve person. There were times I felt like I do in a scary movie when I am thinking don’t go in there or run the  other way and the people just stand there or go in when they shouldn’t, I know you know what I mean, but then Allie and all the others have good instincts and deducing skills too. It is a good mixture of characteristics that makes Allie and the others, like Jen and Liz, who they are and who we love.

This book is more intriguing and tense than the others and I like that. The plot is great and there are so many different suspects that you won’t guess right away who is behind all the trouble or the reason it is happening.  The book has twists and turns that lead you down a path to whodunit, several believable suspects as well as some romance and a lot of characters that you can relate to.

I have always wanted to go to Mackinac Island and reading this book makes me want to go even more. The Island itself is a very important unique part of the whole plot and book. I love the closeness that Allie has with her friends and the quaintness of the hotel and fudge shop. Fudge making brings back some great memories of my Grandmother and me making fudge together. I love the recipes that are included and can’t wait to make the Pecan Pie fudge.

I cannot say enough how great this book is and it can be read as a stand-alone book but the other two books are good too. I hope you will run right out and get this book I am sure you won’t be disappointed.
